One of our core missions as a brand is to build an authentic and inclusive community centered around sustainability. True wellness and sustainability can only take place when the entire community is well, yet there has always been a focus on the individual and we'd like to be a part of shifting that notion. We are also very aware that both of the wellness and sustainability spaces are dominated by white voices, which is why when Jesal Parikh from Yogawalla and Sophie Griffiths from Feral & True approached us about sponsoring the 2020 list of 20 Yoga Teachers of Color to Watch we were incredibly excited to get involved! We hope this list can amplify the collective work, which often intersects with social and environmental justice, of this incredible list of Teachers. Meet this year's nominees below!
You can learn more about how this project began with 19 Women of Color to Watch in Yoga in 2019.
